If you are looking for cleaning hacks, decluttering ideas, and organization ideas for the home, then look no further. Today, we’re making our own daily shower cleaner to use in between those days when the shower needs a deep cleaning.
This daily shower cleaner will prevent soap scum buildup and daily grime. Best of all, you may already have the ingredients in your home.
Why use a daily shower cleaner? The best reason is to make your deep cleaning days fewer by adding a dose of prevention to maintain daily cleanliness. By spraying this daily shower cleaner onto the walls of the shower and the interior of the bathtub, you’ll prevent your shower from needing to be cleaned and scoured so frequently.
For my purposes, I chose to try this daily shower cleaner out before suggesting it to my readers. My experience has been good. The first time I applied this spray, I let it sit on the surfaces for about 15 minutes.
I, then, gave the shower a wipe down with a cloth and rinsed it with water. The next several days, I simply sprayed on the solution and allowed it to air dry. I did not wipe it down and I did not rinse it off.
Note: I do not have glass shower doors, so I cannot speak to it’s effectiveness on glass, but I have read some suggestions online that say you can add a dishwasher rinse aid to this solution to keep your glass from spotting. But, understand I have not tried that remedy, so I cannot comment on it’s effectiveness.
How to make the daily shower cleaner:
The ingredients are simple and you may already have them in your cabinets, specifically your first-aid cabinet. You will need the following to make your daily shower cleaner:
1. A spray bottle
2. Liquid Dishwashing detergent
3. Hydrogen peroxide
I used the following blend to make my daily shower cleaner:
-1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide
-1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
-1 tsp liquid dish soap
-3 cups water
Because my spray bottle is small, I cut this recipe down to size. I also sprayed it liberally on my bathtub and shower surfaces, so I used quite a bit the first day. The next several days, I haven’t sprayed as much of the solution.
As mentioned before, this daily shower cleaner is supposed to cut down on the time you spend cleaning, so feel free to spray it as liberally as you like. Also, you may want to spray in a ventilated area if you spray it liberally. It works well, but it has a medicinal scent because of the ingredients.
Overall, I have been very pleased with the results I’m seeing. My shower floor usually gets a good buildup of soap scum, but this daily shower cleaner seems to help with this.
